"Una empacadora de alimentos se va a huelga reclamando la reinserción de cuatro compañeros despedidos injustamente. Marcos Luquín, un líder sindical comprometido y honesto, encabeza la lucha, pero una serie de turbios intereses políticos van contaminando el movimiento obrero hasta convertirlo en algo desdibujado, donde nadie sabe bien a bien a qué o a quién responde. Las horas violentas es un drama profundamente humano y una intensa crónica de la historia del sindicalismo mexicano, sus oscuras alianzas y permanentes traiciones. Una historia donde el compromiso con los intereses de los trabajadores es sólo un discurso articulado en función de camuflar intereses políticos, empoderar mafias y nutrir una de nuestras tradiciones nacionales más arraigadas: la corrupción." -- Cubierta

Olga Lang, una pueblerina con enormes aspiraciones, sueña con convertirse en una estrella de cine. Encandilada por la intensidad de las luces del set y el glamour, está dispuesta a superar cualquier obstáculo con tal de conseguir su objetivo. Sin embargo, pronto entenderá que el precio que hay que pagar es demasiado alto: que la amistad, la memoria y el amor quedan fuera del camino hacia el éxito y, en su lugar, permanece únicamente una sensación infinita de soledad. En esta novela entrañable, en la que se entremezclan personajes de ficción con figuras del cine mexicano de los años cincuenta, las historias paralelas confluyen en las calles de la Ciudad de México y nos regalan, a través de los bares, restaurantes y cabarets más famosos del momento, una vieja fotografía en sepia del centro de la ciudad

A first-hand account of the remarkable transformation of China over the past forty years. As a 20-year-old exchange student from Stanford in 1981, Pomfret spent a year at Nanjing University in China. His classmates were among those who survived the twin tragedies of Mao's rule--the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution--and whose success in government and private industry today are shaping China's future. Pomfret went on to a career in journalism, spending the bulk of his time in China. After attending the twentieth reunion of his class, he decided to reacquaint himself with some of his classmates. This book is their story and his own. As we watch Pomfret and his classmates begin to make their lives as adults, we see the human cost and triumph of China's transition from near-feudal communism to first-world capitalism.--From publisher description
